Recently I received a gum holder in a swap and I knew right away I wanted to try one! I started out designing this for a swap coming up but it was just taking too much time to complete with all the embossing, sponging, cutting, etc. So I made one with a Christmas design instead and I will share that one another time. I started with a piece of 3 1/2 x 9 3/4 cardstock which was scored at 2 1/4, 2 1/2, 6 and 6 1/4. I wheeled the inside with the Leaves Awash Jumbo wheel and folded it on the score lines. (The short side becomes the top flap.) The bottom was punched with the Word Window punch inserted as far as it will go. Next it is folded and attached near the edge (above the opening) with red liner tape. This creates a cute pocket to slip a pack of gum into.
The flower was stamped and heat embossed 3 times onto glossy cardstock. I sponged each one with Rose Red and Pumpkin inks and buffed them with a tissue. The flowers were then cut out and layered with dimensionals. A copper brad was placed in the center and it was mounted over a piece of ribbon. These are so easy to make and can be decorated for any season or occasion.
